Tehran (IP) - Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman said that Iran supports Iraq's efforts in the fight against terrorism and the establishment of peace and stability in the country.

Iran PressIran News: Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi strongly condemned the criminal and cowardly actions of the ISIS terrorist group in killing a number of fasting Iraqi Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU) forces in the holy month of Ramadan.

Mousavi sympathized with the Iraqi nation and government and expressed hope that with a national resolution they uproot the remnants of the notorious terrorist group as soon as possible.

“History has shown that the pure blood of the Mujahideen working for the sake of God, will never be wasted and the revenge of the pure blood, leading to the growth and development of Islam, justice, and truth, will be taken,” he said.

The spokesman reiterated that the Islamic Republic of Iran supports Iraq's efforts in the fight against terrorism and the establishment of peace and stability in the country, and condemns any attempt to destabilize Iraq.

The ISIS terrorist group attacked the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) in southern Tikrit and northern Samarra in Saladin province on Saturday morning, prompting a swift response of PMU forces.

During the clashes, 10 members of PMU were martyred and 4 others were wounded, yet a number of terrorists were killed or wounded. 

Many Iraqi politicians consider the re-activation of the ISIS remnants as an act by the US so that it could keep its troops in Iraq.
